No it did not come directly from Aikido it came from Jujutsu from which both Judo and Aikido were derived.
Derived from different, and unrelated, schools of jujutsu, actually. A minor point - there was Aikido influence on the Judo curriculum through Kenji Tomiki.

Of course there are simularities on movement and off balancing but the randori that Judoka do makes them better at doing kuzushi against resisting opponents.
At least the Judo folks like to think so - but isn't that the disagreement at the heart of the thread anyway?
